Home again, home again, jiggedy jig

Home for the night. Lonnie is staying at the hospital and I am doing laundry, feeding and socializing with the cats, doing my internet stuff, and trying to find the missing brown bag.

Hospital food! I have eaten almost every meal at the hospital. Interestingly enough, the food is decent. Tonight I had lasagna, green beans, plums and vanilla pudding. For lunch, grilled chicken, new potatoes, mixed fresh veggies and raspberry sherbet. Breakfast was biscuits and gravy, sausages, pineapple juice cereal and coffee. The best part of it is that it is delivered to the room and costs $3 for lunch and dinner, $1.75 for breakfast. Some of the meals are pure comfort food, and there is always enough. Jenny Craig would probably not be happy with me right now! There are three or four places to eat in town, including a Pizza Hut, an upscale steak house, a café that never has parking because the pickup trucks have every space taken (and there are a lot of them) and a place called The Frozen Frog that has killer panini sandwiches!


  1. Maybe we can have yearbook camp at the hospital next summer. The food sounds much better and the cost is about 1/4 of what Saint Mary's charges us. We could use the money we save on food to fly all the kids to Oklahoma! How big is that ranch? We can rent tents and porta potties and...

  2. Eat a panini for me, will ya?

  3. Well now that I am in Wichita, I suspect i can eat what you guys eat. the eateries are all the same!

    Jane, I think we could fit 300 kids on the home place, it has 300 acres, one per kid and two cow ponds for recreation. We could have tarantula races and rattlesnake hunts and...
